When La Liga powerhouse Atletico Madrid hosts Celtic at the Civitas Metropolitan Stadium in Madrid on Tuesday evening, they will be eager to advance further in their quest for knockout stage status. Atletico had to fight tough for a 2-2 finish during their game from last month, but at the halfway mark, they are still within one point of the top position.
Diego Simeone’s team had earlier rallied to defeat Feyenoord 3-2 in Madrid, merely their third victory in their prior 13 Champions League group matches, after being held to a thrilling stalemate by Lazio on the first matchday. Even though things haven’t gone perfectly in Europe, Los Colchoneros just tied a club record with 14 straight home wins in La Liga, and they’ve won 7 of their past 9 games overall. Morata’s late goal, meanwhile, was insufficient to prevent them from falling on Friday evening against Las Palmas, meaning Simeone’s team has only won a pair of their past 6 road meetings. Simone is also worried about Memphis Depay and Reinildo’s fitness, as there are concerns about both players starting the game. He can select from a squad that is otherwise totally fit.
Scotland’s champions did not have a great start to the Champions League group stage. The team suffered a 0–2 loss to Feyenoord, the Dutch champion. In reference to that particular match, the Scottish team had two players sent off and their performance was poor. The fact that only two goals were given up was miraculous. After that setback, they suffered an agonizing defeat to Lazio and they drew with Atletico at home in a thrilling match. Even though Brendan Rodgers’ team is winning the local championship handily, their air of dominance does not carry over to Europe. Even though it will be difficult to place in the top two spots in the group stage, Celtic could try to qualify for the Europa League if they place in the third position.
